Colonel Gaddafi has unleashed his air force against the Libyan people! As if using anti-aircraft weapons against the protesters wasn't enough. What a cowardly act.
He has severed all communications with his country to enforce a complete blackout as he sets about decimating a population seeking freedom and dignity. He is using his African mercenaries to murder Libyans. It seems the revolutionary colonel who has spent countless hundreds of millions of dollars fomenting revolutions across the globe thinks he has a monopoly on revolution in Libya.
You would expect the countries that form the Arab League and its secretary general Amr Moussa to act forcefully against the mass murder Gaddafi is perpetrating. That they are not speaks volumes about the character and nature of these regimes.
I sincerely hope that there is a tank commander in the Libyan army here and there that will mutiny. It is up to the lower ranking officers in the Libyan armed forces to rebel against this deplorable act of mass murder.
Gaddafi will not go the way of Ben Ali and Mubarak. Like I said in my previous post, he will seek to destroy the country with a vengeance unparalleled since the Syrian regime perpetrated the Hama massacre in 1982.
This person called Muammar al-Gaddafi, long viewed as an eccentric and unbalanced character, rehabilitated and forgiven his many crimes by the West in exchange for oil and dollars, has finally exposed himself as a homicidal maniac. He does not deserve the luxury of escaping on a plane to another country or beach resort.
My heart says I want him to fall into the hands of the people he's massacring. The mind says he needs to be brought on trial for crimes against humanity.
You Arabs: Dignity.. Courage.. Human rights, you Arabs!
